What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Stuff and Nonsense

On Saturday, before my big post-gardening-week/pre-company massive house-cleaning binge, my sister and I met up at a local greenhouse/farm for a bit of 'play'. "All work and no play makes Rebecca a dull girl" and all that.

I came home and my allergies kicked in to full gear.  I spent the rest of the day cleaning with tissues shoved up my nose.  (The kids think my allergy days are hilarious, btw) I also got a STY on my eye.    Not only was I dripping profusely from the nose and sneezing continuously, but I looked very much like a spousal abuse victim.  It was really GREAT looking so good when Matt's boss came to dinner.  Not.  (By then I didn't have a tissue hanging out of my nose, thank goodness.)

I post this picture here as proof that my life is not always (hardly ever) idyllic, in case you needed any.  Never say I am not real with you on this blog!

Sunday our company came despite the weatherman calling for severe storms, hail and intense winds.  I was nervous about the weather the whole time but turns out- we were able to eat (and visit) outside with only one  five minute downpour and beautiful double rainbow to make up for it.

Andrew found a baby creature deep in the woods (I am thinking a baby pheasant or quail?) so the children were pretty occupied with that.

 One of the things I offered for food when company came was a baked potato bar.  It was SO GREAT.  I can't decide if it was because they tasted so good or because it was such a fuss-free food to serve to company that I liked it so much. (Why have I never thought of this until now?)  Wash, prick, salt and pepper and wrap potatoes in aluminum foil and put on low for 8 hours (four hours on high) in crockpot and TA-DA, baked potatoes ready for slathering with good stuff.
